99¢ Only Stores - Saving you money since the '60s
The history of 99¢ Only Stores dates back to the 1960s when Dave Gold inherited a small liquor store in downtown Los Angeles. He strongly believed that selling everything at 99¢ would prove very popular so he ran a test of selling bottles of wine for 99¢. He soon set out to open the very first 99¢ Only Store after finding the perfect building to rent. On Friday the 13th of August 1982, Dave and Sherry Gold opened the very first 99¢ Only Store in Los Angeles. To mark the occasion, Dave sold television sets at the grand opening for only 99¢ which attracted many customers and large media attention. 99¢ Only Stores continue to sell televisions and other enticing products when a new store opens. 99¢ Only Stores later opened new stores in California and then expanded to new regions in Arizona, Nevada and Texas after becoming public in 1996.
